Instructions for setting-up a NuGet private feed on your development machine are given at The following instructions allow you to do the same when running MSBuild on a Build machine such as hosted by Azure.

  1. Add NuGet.config to WebApp project in Visual Studio
    • Add new item NuGet.config to same directory as project.json and edit as below, setting your own username and password (in clear text) as needed to logon to the Telerik site:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
               <add key="Telerik" value="" />
              <add key="Username" value="will.***@****.com" />
              <add key="ClearTextPassword" value="********" />
  1. Edit Build Definition to add step for NuGet installer - In Visual Studio a) select Team Explorer, Builds b) select Build Definition, right click | Edit Build Definition. This opens the Build Definition in your browser - see attached screen shot
  2. In Build Definition editor add build step = Nuget Installer, drag/drop to top of list and specify the solution file as well as the NugGet.config
  3. Save
  4. Save your changes to source control for the WebApp in Visual Studio - i.e. the Build Definition and NuGet.config
  5. Queue a New Build

I hope this saves someone a bit of time.

Hello Will,


Thank you very much for this information. I think it would be indeed useful for many developers that deploy on Azure. 


I created a GitHub issue for this information to be added in the documentation. If you have any updates you can post comments here:
